about

 

THE CLINAMEN IS A SPONTANEOUS DEVIATION AT THE ORIGIN OF THE CREATION OF WORLDS; an undetermined and random swerving of an atom, a change in trajectory that will finish in a meeting with another atom. A shock and then an explosion, in which a new universe is born.

CLINAMEN is an independent, non-profit publishing house created in Geneva in 2013 by Mélanie Borès, Roxane Bovet and Lucas Cantori.

 

Without becoming burdened by limiting borders, Clinamen moves in the domains of contemporary art. Its main intention is to valorize an ambiguous position, a position at the intersections of the web rather than at the center, to reject simplistic categories in order to see what ideas might come from meetings of people, disciplines, generations and practices. Clinamen's objective is to publish the unexpected and the essential within the vanguard of contemporary art and critical and curatorial theory.

 

In parallel, and since contemporary creation would not exist without its genealogy, CLINAMEN in also interested in the republication of texts and works corresponding to its editorial tentacles. The collection is titled mimic octopus and, like the rest of the project, doesn't stop at borderlines.

 

Far from the notion of a publisher as a simple producer of written traces, Clinamen has as its objective to always work in close collaboration with artists in order to interrogate the very notion of publishing; to question editorial work here and now; TO BE PART OF A PROJECT RATHER THAN THE INTERMEDIARY OF A TEXT FINISHED UPON ARRIVAL. Since its creation, Clinamen has realized several project with this vision (Yoan Mudry, 2013 / FloppyPoppyWidy MATTER, 2014 / Ceel Mogami de Haas, 2014).

 

Clinamen is a space for research in which publishing is considered to be curatorial and experimental.

And let there be no mistake:

Publishing is not limited to producing book-objects. We speak as well of sound publishing, posters, multiples, lithography, engravings, notebooks, maps, plates, virtual publishing, imaginary, concrete, poetic, protesting, sweet or original, accordion books and wallpaper.
